Reptilia is a state of the art 25,000 square foot facility complete with large exhibits showcasing hundreds of different reptiles and amphibians, from giant pythons to massive crocodiles and king cobras. Watch our Cast at work in the nursery, our food preparation area and the venomous workshop! Each day there are a variety of opportunities to interact with our animals and learn from our exceptional Cast Members during our shows, tours and animal feedings! With four reptile feedings every day, free live theatre shows or zoo keeper tours and a chance to interact with the reptiles and the Zoo Cast, Reptilia is a destination worth visiting. Reptilia's Zoo is the first of its kind and it adds another destination to Vaughan's already growing list of attractions.

Lots of great reptiles. Kids loved walking through and got to touch a few of the reptiles. Good on a cold day if you want to pass some time. It's a bit short but we went around twice.

My boys loved going and seeing the reptiles. It is a good way to spend a rainy or sunny day. The kids loved seeing a snake being fed

I came for my nephews birthday party. I found it very chaotic as he was not given a private area and there were probably 50 other people all crowded around us every time we did something new. There was no special engagement with any of the reptiles. I will their customer service and lack of enthusiasm was poor and took... More

We attended a fundraiser called shellebration. I highly suggest people to come out! The tickets included the price of the zoo and offered a lot of other great activities. A wide range of animals with great staff. There are different programs they run including feedings and meet the animals which are nice touches, Anyone who hasn't been i suggest going.

Took my 10 year old granddaughter. Was pleasantly surprised at the facility. It was obvious the staff working there really enjoyed their work and were very knowledgeable. The fees for admittance were extremely reasonable, would have expected to pay more. You can also pay a fee for a more personal tour when you can feed the tortoise and hold a... More

We really enjoyed this small reptile zoo, the show was good and very informative, there seemed to be lots of zoo keepers there to ask any questions and it appeared well organized and excellent care for the reptiles. We spent about two and a half hours there and that seems like adequate time to visit there. It was fun.

The best small specialized zoo that I've been too, has a very good collection including Anakondas, King Cobra, and a wide variety of snakes, turtles and more. The feeding time and shows are not to be missed, informative and interactive. The behind the scene tour is VERY unique, done it twice. My kids were very impressed getting that close to... More

This location is small - it can be seen in 1-2 hours. They do have shows if you want to stay and watch them. My children had a good time seeing something different (reptiles).

For 150.00$, you can do the behind the scenes encounter and see the facility in a different light. For 25 dollars extra you can take personal shots with creatures from the wild. Bigger the creature then a little bit more. All proceeds goes to support wildlife and the facility and all the food they have to create to feed the... More
